Liquid Force RAWSON Quad 5’10’’

Jun 19, 2009

STYLE: Waves
SIZE: 5’10”
FINS: FCS Glass

On the Water
The Rawson LF Quad design was one of the test favourites for Hatteras downwinders. The aim of the quad-fin setup is to improve carving, edging and upwind ability, while at the same time increase manoeuvring on the wave. Rawson’s shape hits the mark in this respect. This board feels much looser than many normal thruster fin setups. It’s fast and smooth and drives upwind easily on the side fins. On the wave it’s dreamy, it derives good power even from smaller waves and reacts quickly to input, but is stable enough for the less advanced. The lightweight construction and overall feel of the board is equally as groundbreaking.

Board Construction
Liquid Force Rawson surf shapes are available in two types of construction: standard durability of the polyester reinforced or the new EVF technology, pictured here. This new tech takes vacuum bag technology to a new level with specially cut bias fiberglass cloth layer which give the board a hand-laminated feel, super lightweight and reactive flex. The metallic paint finish is dope.

Footbed and Strap System

All LF surf shapes come with deck pads and two surf straps. The board provided for testing is Matt Nuzzo’s personal board and is seen here pimped out with Dakine straps.
